Wednesday, May 10, 2017 – LA Weekly – by Johnny Whiteside

LA-Weekly-Logo1

May 13 was officially proclaimed Ritchie Valens Day last year by Los Angeles City Council, and this year, his family and supporters have mounted a series of events over the weekend that are the perfect occasion to revisit Valens’ superb stack of records — songs equally tender and muscular, impressively diverse in style, strikingly well-written and, most importantly, a hell of a lot of fun to listen tohttp://www.laweekly.com/music/celebrate-ritchie-valens-day-with-events-in-the-san-fernando-valley-this-weekend-8208343.

Valens’ incandescent rock & roll testimony remains as influential and high impact today as anything in the historical big beat canon. “Ooh, My Head” and “That’s My Little Suzie” are stone killer rave-ups driven and defined by Valens’ knockout combination of simplicity and soul. And the boy had funk; get a load of the bluesy growl on “I Was Framed,” and his knock-down, tore-up instrumental workout “Fast Freight,” all dazzlingly persuasive glimpses into a stunning artistic range the young musician, just 17 when he died, was only beginning to explore.

“Ritchie was my idol,” says fellow local rocker Chris Montez, whose 1963 U.K. tour featured The Beatles as his opening act. “After I had heard ‘La Bamba’ and ‘Donna,’ I bought his album and tried to sing just like him. Before Ritchie I never knew rock & roll was open for Mexican-Americans because there were no others, so he really opened the door for me.”

Recording with New Orleans studio potentates Rene Hall and Earl Palmer and (who else?) bassist Carol Kaye, his records exerted an influence across the full spectrum, but most critically in East L.A., where an entire game-changing tribe of equally driven teen players broke out with their own singular soul-rock strut just a few years after Valens’ death.

Apart from all that incredible music, Valens’ also left behind a fiercely loyal family who have worked hard to preserve his legacy. “He was a big brother,” his sister Connie Lemos says. “He teased you, he chased you, and he watched over you. But, since my mom worked, he was also a father figure; he fed us, he entertained us, watched over us.

Valens always tried to take care of his family, especially after his recording career really gave him the means to do so. “When he bought us the house, we all drove up, parked outside and I couldn’t believe it,” Lemos remembers. “It was monumental, for people in our position. I said, ‘We are going to live here? It’s like a castle!’ That was the happiest day in my Mom’s life, but it also was the saddest, because she really couldn’t live there after he died. She’d rather have him alive, with us.”

“Every song was different,” Lemos says. “Ritchie expressed himself in so many ways, and he always wrote from his own life. ‘Donna,’ of course, and ‘That’s My Little Suzie’ which was about a friend of ours who had a clubfoot, so when she walked she really did ‘rock to the left and rock to the right.’ Mom used to always tell us, ‘Come on, Let’s go!’ And after he had a dream where he was on a flying carpet, he wrote ‘In a Turkish Town.’ All of his feelings, emotions came out in the songs.”

The weekend’s events include two special student assemblies on Friday featuring a cappella doo-wop group The Alley Cats at Valens’ alma mater, San Fernando High School on Friday, followed by a meet-and-greet with siblings Connie Lemos, Irma Norton, Bob Morales and Mario Ramirez Friday night at Burbank’s Rocket Fizz (also a launch party for the estate’s newly introduced Richie Valens Soy Capitan Cola). On Saturday, an open-to-the-public sock hop hits San Fernando High, free for anyone 17 and under, headlined by Ritchie’s younger brother Mario Ramirez and his Backyard Blues Band, with proceeds going to the school’s music program.

Even almost 60 years later, Valens’ loss remains incalculably painful to his siblings. “Ritchie’s career moved so quickly,” Lemos says. “It was like he was on the straight-away and all he had to do was just hang on.”

An unbearable “what if?” hangs over Valens’ death to this day. The only reason he got on the plane, a tiny Beechcraft Bonanza that made an ill-advised takeoff in bad weather, was that he persuaded Holly’s guitarist, Tommy Allsup, to wager his seat in a coin toss. (Allsup passed away Jan. 11, 2017.)

“Mom never forgave herself for signing his guardianship over to [Del-Fi Records head] Bob Keane,” says Lemos. “[Keane] was supposed to be there. Ritchie wasn’t supposed to be making those decisions.”

A pause.

“She always said Ritchie played so hard, she thought he’d make the guitar cry.”

Richie Valens Soy Capitan™Cola launch with Valens siblings Connie Lemos, Irma Norton, Bob Morales, Mario Ramirez, at Rocket Fizz, 3524 W. Magnolia Blvd., Burbank, Friday, May 12, 6:30-8 p.m. (818) 846-7632.

Mario Ramirez & Backyard Blues Band, John Mueller at San Fernando High School Auditorium, 11133 O’Melveny Avenue, San Fernando, Saturday, 5-9 p.m.; $15 general admission, $25 per couple, 17 and under free accompanied by parent. (818) 898-7255. Tickets available via BrownPaperTickets.com.

C3 Entertainment, Press Releases, Uncategorized

C3 has purchased over a thousand hours of historic military-themed titles from Creation Films.

C3 Entertainment, Inc. continues to grow the content and distribution segment of their business by acquiring the worldwide rights to one of the largest military film libraries. The patriotic programming from Creation Films adds to C3’s already robust library of comedy, historical, mystery and inspirational titles, and positions the company as a content leader.

Other recent C3 acquisitions and rights to distribute include the Gold Creek catalog of historical documentaries, the romantic comedy feature Love and Support, and the children’s animated educational series Rainbow Valley Fire Department.

The Creation Films Library covers the U.S. and worldwide military experience, and footage in the films features fighting forces and troops from every continent in the world. The library also contains hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews with veterans and civilians from the First World War to the present. Some of The Civil War footage includes battle re-enactments with as many as 7,000 soldiers on the field at one time. Many recreated on the very fields where the original battles took place. The stock inventory used in the films ranges from Thomas Edison film shot in 1898 of the return of the Teddy Roosevelt’s “Rough Riders” from Cuba to modern footage shot during current conflicts.

We already have military and mystery titles that do very well on popular digital platforms and home entertainment,” says Ani Khachoian, C3’s Executive Vice President of Licensing, Merchandising and Distribution. “When the opportunity to own Creation’s vast military catalog presented itself, it was a logical progression in our distribution strategy. The acquisition allows us to increase our efforts to exploit C3’s content across traditional and emerging platforms.

Creation Films owner Edward Feuerherd, added, “Many years of love and labor went into creating these films. The library is in good hands with the talented team at C3. Through their distribution and marketing expertise, they’ll get these remarkable films the audience they deserve.

As the brand-owner of The Three Stooges®, C3 also distributes several Three Stooges titles, including the recent nine-hour docu-series, Hey Moe! Hey Dad! which recently had its broadcast premiere on Decades TV. C3 co-produced the 2012 Three Stooges Movie with Twentieth Century Fox. The company has also produced multiple television specials.

New independent productions on the horizon for C3 are a new Three Stooges Movie and the upcoming family film, The Three Little Stooges.

Some of the title highlights of the new C3 Patriotic Library include:

Pearl Harbor: Attack on America (3, 60-minute episodes) The three-hour miniseries is an in-depth look at the December 7, 1941 Japanese surprise attack on the American military base at Pearl Harbor.

The film is narrated by Dale Dye who spent two decades in the U.S. Marine Corps and has lent his expertise to films such as Platoon, Saving Private Ryan, and Band of Brothers.

The Complete Civil War (10, 60-minute episodes) Beyond a textbook look at the America’s greatest internal crisis, the series uses masterfully crafted battlefield re-enactments taking the viewer on the battlefield to experience the soldier’s point of view.

Ritchie Valens’ Image Reborn With New Licensing Deal

C3 Entertainment, Press Releases, Ritchie Valens, The Big Bopper, Winter Dance Party

 

Billboard – 8/26/2016 by  –

Valens’ branded La Bamba Cola, limited edition guitars and video games part of merchandising strategy to bring Latino rock-n-roll pioneer to young audiences

La Bamba Cola, on-line video games and limited-edition guitars are some of the products planned to bring revive the popularity of Ritchie Valens. The new licensing and merchandising deal by Southern California-based C3 Entertainment marks the first time that the image of the teenage Latino rock pioneer — who died with Buddy Holly in a 1959 plane crash — will be promoted through an official licensing initiative sanctioned by Valens’ family.

“More than a retro endeavor, the multicultural aspect of Valens’ licensing program is pivotal,” Ani Khachoian, C3 Entertainment’s Executive Vice President of Licensing, Merchandising and Distribution, told Billboard via email. “We want to make sure every fan has the opportunity to rediscover this rock ’n’ roll icon, and that we introduce Valens to new audiences. He was a talented, positive young man, who worked hard. It’s a wonderful legacy for young people.”

C3 also represents the legacy of The Big Bopper, who died in the snowy crash with Valens and Holly while on their Winter Dance Party tour. In addition, C3 created the licensing program for John Mueller’s Winter Dance Party, a current touring tribute show featuring Mueller — who starred in The Buddy Holly Story stage musical — performing as Holly, with other artists paying homage to Valens and the Big Bopper.

Valens, best known for his hit “La Bamba,” signed to Del-Fi Records in 1958 and recorded two albums, releasing singles that included “Donna,” which reached no. 2 on the Billboard pop chart. The 1978 movie La Bamba, starring Lou Diamond Phillips with music performed by Los Lobos, brought Valens’ story to new audiences; the soundtrack album sold 2 million copies in the United States.

C3’s Khachoian says that a La Bamba Cola beverage is set to be manufactured and distributed by the Rocket Fizz Soda Pop & Candy Shops chain. Online games, clothing and collectibles are also in the works. “We’re passionate about securing limited-edition guitars – Valens played several different models of guitars,” Khachoian adds. “We are also positioning him for advertising and live events.”
